Conservative? Or a Pioneer?


While the automotive industry carries a reputation as conservative and as slow to adopt innovation, that only applies to its final products. Even then, the industry explores new technologies relatively early, but because its products have long life cycles, it often takes several years for the new technologies to hit the market. When it comes to Smart Manufacturing technologies, the automotive industry has served as one of its pioneers.

The automotive industry has seen its share of publicity stunts, such as Audi’s Factory 4.0, but manufacturers have truly made strides in adopting transformative technologies in their factories. These new technologies range from Additive Manufacturing (AM) and Augmented Reality (AR) to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Collaborative Robotics (cobots).
